The trio released six singles and an EP on the Philips label before joining CBS in 1967. That year they released the album Freewheelers, consisting of standards sometimes adventurously arranged by Keith Mansfield (composer of the Grandstand theme tune, amongst others). The follow-up, 1968’s Three In A Cell, included a downtempo version of ‘On A Clear Day (You Can See Forever)’, from the 1965 musical of the same name, which was later heavily sampled for its bass and hammond organ riff. The third and final CBS album, Birthday, followed in 1969, and brought the band two UK Top 40 singles in ‘Girlie’ and the title track. Following Birthday, the Peddlers returned to Philips.
Morais left the trio during an Australian tour in 1972, and the Peddlers disbanded in 1976.
